The 1910 E90-3 set distributed by the American Caramel Co. of Chicago included 20 different players from the Chicago based Cub and White Sox teams. Ultra popular with serious vintage type collectors, like many of their brethren these “E” cards are highly condition sensitive with mid-grade and higher examples seldom surfacing within the hobby. That said, presented here is an absolutely magnificent E90-3 Rollie Zeidler PSA 6 specimen that qualifies as one of the finest graded “E” cards based on the following “Pop Chart” data: • This incredible E90-3 Zeidler PSA 6 card is the SOLE copy at this tier with NONE graded higher on BOTH the PSA and SGC Census Reports, the highest graded E90-3 Zeidler specimen in existence! • The combined SGC and PSA “pop” charts list nearly 600 TOTAL encapsulated examples for the set’s 20 subjects, with only 3.9% equaling the “EX-MT 6” grade and a mere 9 or 1.5% graded higher! Utility infielder Rollie Zeidler could play any of the four infield positions, and his 49 stolen bases as a White Sox rookie remained the American League rookie stolen base record for 76 years until John Cangelosi topped it in 1986. For many years, Zeidler was nicknamed “hook” because of his beak like nose until he developed blood poisoning after Ty Cobb spiked him directly in his bunion, leading to his new nickname “Bunion”. An awe-inspiring pose of the popular early 20th century player adorns the obverse side as Zeidler, bat on shoulder, prepares to stroke another base hit. Fine registration and gray hues dominate his vintage style uniform that is set against a radiant bold yellow background. Clean surfaces, strong square corners and a brilliant reverse side American Caramel advertisement complete this century old marvel that can certainly stake a claim for near mint status. Only a partly off-centered image favoring the right edge and minimal touching at the utmost corner tips may have prevented this card from achieving a higher grade. Yet, the astounding aforementioned “pop” chart data clearly indicating this offering’s supreme status as the finest of its kind is more than sufficient to categorize this E90-3 Zeidler as a world-class treasure!
